Please keep the me or the W3C in the CSS as I'm not subscribed to the Atom list.

I find the wording confusing:

  An Atom link element with a rel attribute value of "up" may be used to
  reference a resource where parent entries of an entry or a feed may be found.

It's not immediately clear to me how this contradicts the IANA registry.
